DONATED TO LEGION BY UNKNOWN DONOR, THEN TO MUSEUM BY LEGION. FOR HISTORY OF COLLECTION SEE P19970073001-GA. HISTORY AND USE OF PIECE UNKNOWN. *UPDATE* IN 2012 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT DAVID SMITH CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF MILITARY OBJECTS. HE WAS UNABLE TO DISCOVER NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THE ORIGINAL OWNER, BUT WAS ABLE TO IDENTIFY THE COUNTRY OR ORIGIN AND SITE OF PRODUCTION. ACCORDING TO THE BAYONET IDENTIFICATION GUIDE WITH WORLDBAYONETS ONLINE, “APPROVED IN NOVEMBER 1939 THE NO. 4 MK. I BAYONET WAS SHORT, LIGHT, STURDY, AND UNAPPEALING. SINCE THE GOVERNMENT ARMS FACTORIES WERE ALREADY RUNNING AT CAPACITY PRODUCING RIFLES AND MACHINE GUNS, PRIVATE CONTRACTS WERE LET FOR BAYONET PRODUCTION. BECAUSE OF ITS GREAT SIMPLICITY, THE GOVERNMENT WAS ABLE TO LET CONTRACTS TO FIRMS NOT PREVIOUSLY ASSOCIATED WITH ARMS PRODUCTION. DURING THE WAR, THE NO. 4 BAYONET EVOLVED (OR DEVOLVED), WITH EACH GENERATION BECOMING MORE CRUDE AND CHEAPER TO MANUFACTURE. NEARLY 5 MILLION SPIKE BAYONETS WERE REPORTED PRODUCED. DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR, THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT CURTAILED THE USE OF COMMERCIAL TRADEMARKS TO MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR THE GERMANS TO LOCATE (AND BOMB) FACTORIES PRODUCING WAR MATERIEL. THE GOVERNMENT ASSIGNED EACH MANUFACTURER A DISPERSAL CODE TO USE IN LIEU OF THEIR TRADEMARK. DISPERSAL CODES BEGIN WITH A LETTER DENOTING THE GENERAL LOCATION (N=NORTH, M=MIDDLE, AND S= SOUTH), FOLLOWED BY UP TO THREE DIGITS. MANUFACTURERS IN NORTH AMERICA DID NOT USE DISPERSAL CODES. THE MARKING ON THE BAYONET INDICATES THAT IT WAS PRODUCED BY THE SAVAGE-STEVENS CO. OF CHICOPEE FALLS, MASSACHUSETTS. SAVAGE-STEVENS CO. MADE APPROXIMATELY 1.25 MILLION NO. 4 MK. II BAYONETS DURING 1941 AND 1942. THESE WERE PROVIDED TO BRITAIN UNDER THE LEND-LEASE ACT. SAVAGE-MADE BAYONETS ARE MUCH CRUDER FORGINGS THAN THOSE MADE BY EITHER SINGER OR LONG BRANCH.” FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE.

BELIEVED OF FRENCH OR GERMAN ORIGIN & ACQUIRED AS WW I BATTLEFIELD SOUVENIR. *UPDATE* IN 2012 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT DAVID SMITH CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF MILITARY OBJECTS. HE WAS UNABLE TO DISCOVER NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THE ORIGINAL OWNER, BUT WAS ABLE TO IDENTIFY THE COUNTRY OR ORIGIN AND SITE OF PRODUCTION. THE ‘MANUFACTURE D'ARMES DE SAINT-ÉTIENNE’ WAS A FRENCH STATE-OWNED MANUFACTURING COMPANY LOCATED IN THE TOWN OF SAINT-ÉTIENNE. IT HAS SINCE BEEN MERGED INTO THE STATE-OWNED NEXTER DEFENSE CONGLOMERATE. THE ROYAL ARMS MANUFACTURE WAS CREATED IN 1764 UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE GENERAL INSPECTOR OF THE ROYAL ARMS MANUFACTURE OF CHARLEVILLE. IN 1838, THE ANNUAL PRODUCTION WAS WELL OVER 30,000 FIREARMS. IN 1864, THE MODERN FACTORY WAS BUILT, NEW STEAM-POWERED MACHINES WERE INSTALLED AND THE FIRST MILITARY STANDARDIZED BOLT ACTION RIFLE, THE CHASSEPOT, WAS PRODUCED FROM 1866 ON, THEN THE GRAS RIFLE AFTER 1874. THIS BAYONET WAS MADE IN FEBRUARY OF 1846 AT THE FRENCH STATE ARSENAL, MANUFACTURE D'ARMES DE SAINT-ÉTIENNE. THOUGH CREATED IN 1845, THE YATAGHAN SWORD BAYONET IS USED ON THE 11 MM CHASSEPOT NEEDLE-FIRE RIFLE PRODUCED IN 1866 AND CAN ALSO MOUNT TO THE 11 MM GRAS RIFLE PRODUCED AFTER 1874. THE TERM "YATAGHAN" IS DERIVED FROM THE TURKISH WORD FOR "ONE WHO LAYS DOWN" TO DESCRIBE THE DOWNWARD-SWEEPING DOUBLE-CURVE BLADE PROFILE. THE DOUBLE-CURVE ADDED STRENGTH AND RIGIDITY WHILE KEEPING THE HILT AND POINT IN ALIGNMENT FOR THRUSTING EFFICIENCY. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE.

BLUE BELT IS LIKELY NOT ORIGINAL TO DAGGER. A SECOND MODEL NAVY DAGGER FROM THE THIRD REICH. ADOPTED IN 1938, IT WAS AUTHORIZED FOR WEAR BY ALL RANKS FROM THE NCO, WITH SWORD KNOT, AND UP. NAVAL CADETS WERE ALSO AUTHORIZED TO CARRY THE NAVY DAGGER WITHOUT PORTEPEE. BELONGED TO DONOR'S HUSBAND, JOSEPH WRIGHT HUNT. BORN IN BEETON, ONTARIO IN 1908, HE WAS RAISED AND EDUCATED IN FOREMOST. AS A RESULT OF HIS WORK WITH GROCERS HORNE AND PITFIELD, HE TRAVELLED ACROSS SASKATCHEWAN, AND WAS ALSO A MANAGER OF THE LIQUOR BOARD IN SASKATCHEWAN. IN JUNE 1943 HUNT ENLISTED IN REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN, SERVING IN THE CANADIAN ARMY SERVICE CORP AS A CLERK. HE COMPLETED HIS SERVICE AS A LANCE CORPORAL HAVING BEEN ACTIVE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM, CENTRAL MEDITERRANEAN, AND EUROPE. HIS FAMILY STATES THAT HE ENLISTED AS A RESULT OF THE DEATH OF AN ELDER BROTHER WHO WAS KILLED WHEN HIS AIRCRAFT WAS SHOT DOWN. THE FAMILY FURTHER STATES THAT WRIGHT SERVED IN THREE UNITS, THE FIRST TWO OF WHICH HE WAS THE SOLE SURVIVOR - HIS ORIGINAL DUTY WAS TO TRANSPORT MUNITIONS. TOWARDS WAR'S END, HE WAS VALUED FOR HIS TYPING SKILLS AND WAS, ACCORDING TO THE FAMILY, MAINTAINED OVERSEAS EVEN AFTER DISCHARGE - DISCHARGE PAPERS RECORD HE WAS HOME BY APRIL 1946 (SEE HARD COPY). HUNT RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING MEDALS AND DECORATIONS FOR HIS SERVICE: 1939-45 STAR, ITALY STAR, FRANCE & GERMANY STAR, CANADIAN VOLUNTEER SERVICE MEDAL & CLASP. AFTER DISCHARGE, HUNT SETTLED WITH HIS WIFE AGNES (NEE ACKERMAN), WHO HE HAD MARRIED IN 1941, IN EASTEND SASKATCHEWAN. IN 1973 THE HUNTS RETIRED TO LETHBRIDGE TO CARE FOR JOSEPH'S ELDER BROTHER. JOSEPH LOVED TO READ AND PLAY VIOLIN. HE PASSED AWAY IN LETHBRIDGE ON MARCH 14, 1996 AT THE AGE OF 87 YEARS. SURVIVING FAMILY MEMBERS DO NOT RECALL THE EXISTENCE OR HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE DAGGER. IT IS ASSUMED TO HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED AS WAR BOOTY BY HUNT, HOWEVER DONOR PASSED AWAY BEFORE MORE INFORMATION COULD BE COLLECTED ABOUT THE DAGGER. PRIOR TO IT'S DONATION TO THE GALT, THE DAGGER WAS HELD BY THE FOAM LAKE MUSEUM IN FOAM LAKE SASKATCHEWAN. THE FOAM LAKE MUSEUM SENT IT TO THE GALT AFTER DONOR CONTACTED THE RCMP, WHO LOCATED IT AMONGST THE MUSEUM'S DISPLAYED ITEMS. THE FOAM LAKE MUSEUM DID NOT HAVE OFFICIAL TITLE TO THE DAGGER. OTHER ITEMS IN GALT COLLECTION DONATED BY AGNES HUNT INCLUDE HER HUSBAND'S UNIFORM. SEE HARD COPY FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

USED BY THE ST. MARY RIVER IRRIGATION DISTRICT. *UPDATE* IN 2015 GALT CURATOR WENDY AITKENS RESEARCHED THIS IRRIGATION GATE FOR POSSIBLE INCLUSION IN AN EXHIBIT. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT THE GATE'S INVENTOR, PETER LANGEMANN, AND ITS USE IN THE ST. MARY RIVER IRRIGATION DISTRICT WAS COMPILED USING BACK ISSUES OF THE WATER HAULER'S BULLETIN, PATENT NO. 08135892, AND LANGEMANN'S OBITUARY. PETER LANGEMANN WAS BORN IN COALDALE IN 1927 AND LIVED MOST OF HIS LIFE ON THE FARM ORIGINALLY OWNED BY HIS PARENTS, JOHN AND ANNA LANGEMANN. HE MARRIED EDNA SALAHOR IN 1969 AND THE COUPLE FARMED GRAIN AND SUGAR BEETS. LANGEMANN WAS INVOLVED WITH AGRICULTURAL COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS INCLUDING THE FORBES LATERAL WATER USERS ASSOCIATION, SUGAR BEET GROWERS OF ALBERTA, AND THE BOARD OF THE ST. MARY RIVER IRRIGATION DISTRICT. DURING HIS SERVICE WITH THE SMRID BOARD, LANGEMANN WORKED ON THE LOPAC GATE, WHICH WAS USED IN THE DISTRICT TO CONTROL THE FLOW OF IRRIGATION WATER. HE DEVELOPED IMPROVEMENTS TO THAT DESIGN, AND IN 1994 PATENTED THE LANGEMANN IRRIGATION GATE, WHICH IS ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED. NO MATTER WHAT VOLUME OF WATER FLOWS THROUGH A CANAL, THE LANGEMANN GATE DIVERTS A SET AMOUNT THROUGH THE TURNOUT. THE GATE IMITATES THE VARIATIONS IN WATER LEVEL ON THE UPSTREAM SIDE, SO THAT IF THE WATER LEVEL GOES UP, THE GATE RISES THE CORRESPONDING AMOUNT, FACILITATING A CONSTANT HEAD OVER THE GATE AND THEREFORE A CONSTANT FLOW OVER IT. THE GATE IS BUILT AS A SINGLE UNIT AND BOLTED TO THE EXISTING WALLS AND FLOOR OF A CONCRETE IRRIGATION TURNOUT. A PROBE ATTACHED ON THE UPSTREAM SIDE SENSES CHANGES IN WATER LEVEL AS SLIGHT AS 3MM. THE POWER TO OPERATE THE GATE IS PROVIDED BY A STANDARD CAR BATTERY, AND IT IS CONTROLLED BY TWO ELECTRONIC INTEGRATED CIRCUITS AND TRANSISTORS. THE MANUFACTURING COST OF THE LANGEMANN GATE AT THE TIME OF ITS PATENTING WAS $1000, AND LANGEMANN GAVE THE INVENTION AND HIS PATENT RIGHTS OVER TO THE ST. MARY RIVER IRRIGATION DISTRICT. IN 1995 THE LANGEMANN GATE WAS COMMERCIALIZED BY AQUA SYSTEMS 2000 INC., AND THE DESIGN IS STILL USED IN IRRIGATION DISTRICTS THROUGHOUT CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES. PETER LANGEMANN CONTINUED TO WORK WITH THE SMRID UNTIL HIS RETIREMENT IN 1997; HE DIED IN LETHBRIDGE ON MAY 26, 2012. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR HARDCOPIES OF SOURCE MATERIAL.

NORTHERN PLAINS CULTURE. *UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON ASKED TWO FORMER MEMBERS OF THE LETHBRIDGE JUNIOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, PHIL EDMUNDSON AND PAUL RUSZNAK, ABOUT THE FIRST NATIONS ARTIFACTS THAT THE GROUP DONATED TO THE GALT MUSEUM IN 1964, 1969, AND 1973. NEITHER RECALLED HOW THE JAYCEES CAME INTO OWNERSHIP OF THE ARTIFACTS, AS THEIR ACQUISITION PREDATED BOTH EDMUNDSON AND RUSZNAK’S MEMBERSHIP IN THE CHAMBER. RESEARCH CONDUCTED INTO LETHBRIDGE’S GURNEY MUSEUM FOUND A CONNECTION BETWEEN ITS PROPRIETOR, WALTER GURNEY, AND THE JAYCEES, WHO ACCORDING TO AN ARTICLE FROM THE APRIL 16, 1946 ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ADVOCATED ON GURNEY’S BEHALF FOR IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MADE TO THE FORMER BOARD OF TRADE BUILDING WHERE THE MUSEUM WAS HOUSED. AN ARTICLE FROM THE JULY 13, 1948 ISSUE OF THE HERALD DESCRIBES SOME OF THE FIRST NATIONS ARTIFACTS ON DISPLAY IN THE MUSEUM: “TOMAHAWKS, ARROW HEADS, PEACE PIPES, BEAD AND LEATHER WORK, CLOTHING AND WOODCRAFT”. UPON THE CLOSURE OF THE MUSEUM AND SALE OF GURNEY’S COLLECTION TO BELMORE SCHULTZ OF THE ALTAMONT MUSEUM IN COUTTS, MENTION WAS MADE IN A HERALD ARTICLE FROM MAY 16, 1961 OF “HISTORICAL INDIAN RELICS THAT BELONG TO THE JUNIOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE HAVE BEEN RETAINED IN THE CITY AND WILL BE AVAILABLE WHEN PROPER DISPLAY FACILITIES ARE AVAILABLE”. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE ARTIFACTS WERE TRANSFERRED TO THE JAYCEES BY GURNEY DURING THE DISSOLUTION OF HIS MUSEUM, BUT NO FURTHER CONFIRMATION WAS FOUND. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE GURNEY MUSEUM AND ITS COLLECTION, SEE RECORD P19890044001.
UPDATE 16 AUGUST 2017: ON 25 JULY 2017, MUSEUM CURATOR AIMEE BENOIT FOUND EVIDENCE TO CONNECT THE INDIGENOUS COLLECTION DONATED BY THE LETHBRIDGE JAYCEES (AKA.

NORTHERN PLAINS. IN 2009, UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE PLAINS ARCHAEOLOGY STUDENT FALLON MAHAR SURVEYED THE GALT'S POINT AND STONE TOOL COLLECTION AND, USING A TEMPLATE DEVELOPED IN COORDINATION WITH PROF. BUBEL AND REFERENCE BOOK "ALBERTA IN STONE", PROVIDED FEEDBACK ON THE GALT'S COLLECTION. THIS RECORD WAS REVISED TO NO LONGER DEFINE THE ARTIFACT AS A PELICAN LAKE POINT - NOW UNIDENTIFIABLE - ON ACCOUNT THAT, "IT'S TOO LARGE FOR A PELICAN LAKE POINT AND ITS BASE (MOSTLY MISSING) IS WIDER THEN ITS BLADE". *UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON ASKED TWO FORMER MEMBERS OF THE LETHBRIDGE JUNIOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, PHIL EDMUNDSON AND PAUL RUSZNAK, ABOUT THE FIRST NATIONS ARTIFACTS THAT THE GROUP DONATED TO THE GALT MUSEUM IN 1964, 1969, AND 1973. NEITHER RECALLED HOW THE JAYCEES CAME INTO OWNERSHIP OF THE ARTIFACTS, AS THEIR ACQUISITION PREDATED BOTH EDMUNDSON AND RUSZNAK’S MEMBERSHIP IN THE CHAMBER. RESEARCH CONDUCTED INTO LETHBRIDGE’S GURNEY MUSEUM FOUND A CONNECTION BETWEEN ITS PROPRIETOR, WALTER GURNEY, AND THE JAYCEES, WHO ACCORDING TO AN ARTICLE FROM THE APRIL 16, 1946 ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ADVOCATED ON GURNEY’S BEHALF FOR IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MADE TO THE FORMER BOARD OF TRADE BUILDING WHERE THE MUSEUM WAS HOUSED. AN ARTICLE FROM THE JULY 13, 1948 ISSUE OF THE HERALD DESCRIBES SOME OF THE FIRST NATIONS ARTIFACTS ON DISPLAY IN THE MUSEUM: “TOMAHAWKS, ARROW HEADS, PEACE PIPES, BEAD AND LEATHER WORK, CLOTHING AND WOODCRAFT”. UPON THE CLOSURE OF THE MUSEUM AND SALE OF GURNEY’S COLLECTION TO BELMORE SCHULTZ OF THE ALTAMONT MUSEUM IN COUTTS, MENTION WAS MADE IN A HERALD ARTICLE FROM MAY 16, 1961 OF “HISTORICAL INDIAN RELICS THAT BELONG TO THE JUNIOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE HAVE BEEN RETAINED IN THE CITY AND WILL BE AVAILABLE WHEN PROPER DISPLAY FACILITIES ARE AVAILABLE”. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE ARTIFACTS WERE TRANSFERRED TO THE JAYCEES BY GURNEY DURING THE DISSOLUTION OF HIS MUSEUM, BUT NO FURTHER CONFIRMATION WAS FOUND. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE GURNEY MUSEUM AND ITS COLLECTION, SEE RECORD P19890044001.
UPDATE 16 AUGUST 2017: ON 25 JULY 2017, MUSEUM CURATOR AIMEE BENOIT FOUND EVIDENCE TO CONNECT THE INDIGENOUS COLLECTION DONATED BY THE LETHBRIDGE JAYCEES (AKA. JUNIOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE) WITH FORMER LETHBRIDGE RESIDENTS THE LATE FRED BOTSFORD AND HIS LATE DAUGHTER DOROTHY CLARK. NOTES MADE BY AIMEE ON THE DISCOVERY AS WELL AS RELEVANT CLIPPINGS FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD CAN BE FOUND ATTACHED TO THE PERMANENT FILE OF P19641140000.
